in arizona, which the republican senator there, john mccain, has been holding in his home state. the woman who stopped the tucson, arizona shooter was there in the room when this happened today at john mccain's town hall. >> my 24-year-old son alex was murdered in a movie theater in aurora, colorado. these assault weapons allow a shooter to fire many rounds without having to reload. these weapons do not belong on our streets. >> i can tell you right now you need some straight talk. that assault weapons ban will not pass the congress of the united states. [ applause ] >> i said that was today. that was actually yesterday. john mccain's arizona constituents, you can hear them at the end there applausing boisterously at his ability to bestow some patented john mccain straight talk on that woman, who obviously needs it, that woman whose son was killed less than a year ago in the aurora, colorado mass shooting. that's the footage that was aired by channel 3 in phoenix. obviously, there was an edit between the end of the woman's question and the part where john mccain sneers the straight talk li
for cloture and move on to his nomination. >> that's right. senators john mccain and lindsey graham will vote to end debate on the confirmation of chuck hagel, eventually, but today, they just didn't feel like it. they towed the party line and voted to block hagel's nomination. the procedural vote failed 40-58 with one senator voting present and one senator not voting. 54 democrats voted in favor as did four republicans. no cabinet member nominated for a national security post has ever been filibustered. only two cabinet secretary nominees in history have been filibustered. both eventually cleared their cloture votes 85-8. and both were eventually easily confirmed. today, senate majority leader harry reid knew he did not have the votes to clear the republican procedural hurdle, but scheduled a vote anyway to demonstrate this. >> republicans have made an unfortunate choice to ratchet up the level of destruction here in washington. there's nothing going to change in the next ten days about the qualifications of chuck hagel. i guess to be able to run for the senate as a republican in most places
're not on the right anymore. this is the new litmus test. let's listen to john mccain who has been on a couple sides of this things. he said a short time ago on fox news this. let's watch. >> they'll probably get the votes when we return from the recess unless something else -- unless another something pops up, and that's doubtful that it will. but to be honest with you, neil, it goes back to there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people don't forget that. >> that seems honest. let's go to senator claire mccaskill who has been tough in dealing on the armed services committee with some of the zealots. i try to find political motive, why is ted cruz, the new kid on the block, acting so ferociously? why are they doing this to a guy who is a middle of the roader? i don't get it. your thoughts, senator? >> i think it's extremism. i think th

that before. republican senators john mccain, roy blunt, roger wicker, susan collins, lisa mer cow ski, all of these said before today that they might vote no on chuck hagel, but they wouldn't block a vote from the minority. they wouldn't filibuster. well, today when push came to shove, it was only susan collins and lisa mercowski who kept their word. the others said they wouldn't filibuster and then they did it anyway. john mccain, row wicker, lindsey graham. they all did it. senator graham says he does not want his filibuster today to be thought of as a filibuster even though that's what it is. he says he prefers to think of what he did is blocking the nomination because he wants to use it as leverage to get more information out of the administration on the president's birth certificate, i'm sorry i mean aliens in area 51. i'm sorry. i mean his thoughts about what happened in benghazi. what does hagel know about benghazi? nothing. he had nothing to do with it. but lindsey graham is filibustering his nomination over it anyway. since chuck hagel had nothing to do with it substantively, why
, senator john mccain is alleging a massive cover-up on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> so it's the state department's fault? who would you blame? who is responsible then? i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare.

, john mccain's changing his tune. we praised him yesterday. so he had to reverse course, i guess. so now he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this
directly from saudi arabia, came directly from north korea -- >> that got him a smackdown from john mccain. >> no one on this committee at any time should impune his character or integrity. >> from democrats, suggestions of mccarthyiasm. >> it was rep nis sent of bad times. >> i do find it ironic in the course of labeling me, they also chide me for not respecting comedy. >> it's clear cruz did not run for senate to make friends. >> i find it amusing that those in washington are puzzled when someone actually does what they said they would do. >> now one gop senator i spoke to about cruz saying that even in the case of healthy egos, cruz stands out for his ego and a tea party activist said that, wolf, he could do well with a small dose of humor. but still it's very clear, talking to cruz, watching him, he relishes the kind of criticism. >> a lot of republicans will reject the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary but only three. he was one of them, rejected john kerry. why did he he reject john kerry? >> because john kerry has agreed to and supported too many international treati
at the faces we see of the republican party, the lindsey grahams, the john mccains, the john boehners, they're angry old men. they're not appealing as human beings. forget issuewise. and clearly the democrats have barack obama. and i want to come back to a debate that we were having. you've covered president after president. it doesn't matter how they shift on the issues until they have the right delivery system, the right human beings who are not tone deaf to an attitude that this country wants. they're never going to get back. ronald reagan got that. to your point earlier, john connelley didn't get that, joe. we said this off the air. that's why he was not elected president. i think it's all moot until they change literally and figuratively the faces of the party. >> well, it can't be just the cosmetics, however. >> not cosmetics, but humanity. >> a combination of the two, it's about the subject matter they're dealing with as well as the manner in which they present it. ronald reagan -- my favorite story about ronald reagan was when he was in a deep recession, they decided they had to do
to know that your president is going to survive four years. >> remember carol when we talked about john mccain's age. that came up. it was a realistic concern for people. ronald reagan, obviously. i think this is going to hold chris christie back if he has further applebitions to be president. i think we know he does. but it is out of line for someone like that doctor to diagnose, we have a lot of radio shows that diagnose people based on the way they look. it's irresponsible and doctors that know better wouldn't do that kind of thing. chris christie, again, i think he's a role model and could do a lot. he doesn't have to. but he could show people how hard he is trying to lose weight. i also understand how much of a struggle it is, it is difficult emotionally and physically. >> he was elected governor. would you have thought he would have been elected? >> it's fine to be governor, but that's different -- you are running against a president who was in office, who used to come out of the water like bo derek in hawaii. if chris christie doesn't fix it, it will be a problem. >> he's the governor.
and john mccain were pitching around in 2008, which is a promise to change all the delete of cars. the reason we can't get substantive climate change is because we can't convince the car industry that it makes sense financially. obama can do a lot. he should do something that provides jobs and cleans the air, not just talk policy. >> that sounds so simple, anna. >> it sounds simple, but it's not. good luck trying to pass any legislation through congress that doesn't come from congress. right now some of the controversial issues that stand a glimmer of hope are immigration and some aspects of gun control. in congress themselves they have found common ground and are pushing it themselves. unfortunately the reality is that president obama right now has the reverse midas touch. everything he touches turns to dirt. >> everything turns to dirt, pete? >> well, listen. i would first ask for everybody to put up their hands on this panel if they believe is man is the biggest factk factor contributing to climate change. no, we're not all putting our hands up? >> that is what is sad about thi
up with your own plan? >> the president invited you and john mccain to the white house tomorrow? >> yeah. >> that doesn't happen every day. >> it doesn't happen every day. yeah, we're going to talk about immigration. i hope we'll talk about this. now is the time to grow up. both parties need to grow up. we need to find a chance to do the big deal. i'll challenge the president. mr. president, let's do things that will straighten out the long term indebtedness of the country. stop talking about between march and october. talk about the next 30 years. i'll raise revenue. will you reform entitlement? and we'll set aside sequestration in a way that won't disrupt the economy. >> other big news on capitol hill this week is the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. you have been very strongly, not against him, per se, but you want more information about him. are you satisfied? >> i think he's an out liar when it comes to our possibly regarding iran and israel. you'll find a hard time finding anyone more antagonistic toward israel on the way he votes. >> doesn't
not been forth coming. you can obviously believe it has. i know that it hasn't. >> senator john mccain not pleased with the president or the press and the responses to the terror attack on september 11th in benghazi, libya. for months the white house has been reluctant to answer questions and this morning we may no why a new report says it was retaliation for secret strikes on al-qaeda that the administration approved. former navy seal brandon web and jack murphy author of a new book "benghazi, the definitive report." you say that john brennan essentially was running a war out of the white house? >> yeah, that is correct. he was authorized to clear these operations inside libya to go in there and destroy weapons and also target high value targets. >> steve: we're talking about a secret war run out of the white house. who gave them the authority? >> it had to be delegated from the president down to john brennan. >> steve: so the war was this. guys, secret guys, special operators, go into libya and get the guns, right? >> i think the main issue is when you have such a small geographic ar
